CMSF2 Dutch Campaign Revamp Preview

Recommended Posts

Good evening all,

@BFCElvis has granted permission for some preview pics to be shared with the community of the upcoming Dutch Campaign revamp. (The remaining CMSF campaigns haven't been forgotten :D ).

Dutch Campaign revamp for CMSF2 is being handled by @Imperial Grunt and Ithikial_AU.

Some of the key changes from CMSF1 version (slight spoilers)
- Reworked briefings to provide more narrative flavour around the Dutch effort and it's role in the wider conflict.
- Lowered campaign difficulty to be more accessible to players of varying skill levels. (Don't worry I don't think having to undertake MOUT missions with a small Company(+) force will be considered "easy"). There was an initial 15% casualty rule in the old campaign, equating to automatic scenario and potentially campaign loss - this was considered pretty harsh. Some hunting around archive forum posts on the Battlefront forums helped identify issues. We were also aware the CMSF engine had evolved since the original release, with automatic weapons now being much more lethal making this parameter difficult for players to meet.
- Victory conditions and campaign script reworked for some scenarios to reflect their close timing and geography between battles. For example, shared support assets, no ammunition resupply, the next missions time of day dependent on the outcome of battle before etc.
- Infantry replenishment added at key points of the campaign.
- Maps tweaked to take advantage of new map features (water, bridges, fortifications etc). Some urban maps have been cratered/ruined to reflect the timing of the campaign in the wider conflict.
- Changes to AI plans to take advantage of new features introduced since CMSF’s release.
- Joint ops for all. (You'll have to play through the campaign to know what that means).

So I guess the cat is out of the bag. I was asked to come on board to help out earlier in the year and the first task I got was helping out on this one. :) Most of the work is done with scenarios individually tested and tweaks made. We're just waiting on briefing graphics and final blind runs through the entire campaign to see how it plays. Obviously R2V has priority at the moment but for the modern war fans there's something around the corner.

Cheers

Ithikial

The Syrians get some new toys. Your air support is no longer invincible.

Reworked maps. In this MOUT engagement the city isn't as pristine as it once was.
